Friday: Ships of Shame

So for my last day of guest hosting, I thought we'd explore Ships of Shame*. Prompts should be about ships you have that you're a little embarrassed about (or very very embarrassed of) and maybe hate yourself a bit for having lol. They can be shameful because they are unpopular ships, have an epic squick factor, or they go against the main OTP for a fandom, they're total crack, or whatever reason you might have. Doesn't matter if they're canon or not, lets have fun with them today!

All ships are welcome and you don't have to give your reasons for them. And lets play nice, lets let everyone air their shameful ship laundry in peace :P.

*and this is meant to be fun and totally ridiculous

And the rules (in case you forgot):

  • No more than five prompts in a row.

  • No more than three prompts in the same fandom.

  • No spoilers in prompts.

  • If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space.

Prompts should be formatted as follows:
Fandom, Character+/Character, Prompt

Some prompts to get things going

  • Star Trek DS9, Kira/Dukat, she finally had reason to arrest him

  • Teen Wolf, Lydia Martin/Chris Argent, on Allison's wedding day

  • Battlestar Galactica, Kara/Leoban, going the wrong way

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spike/Giles, getting caught reading up on Spike in his books

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Visit the lonely prompt archive and brighten someone’s day. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spike/Giles, getting caught reading up on Spike in his books

Fill: You Handsome Devil
It starts out as research, pure and simple. Learning about Spike’s past, his weaknesses, his habits. In case the chip stops working. In case the chip stops working and they have to fight him again.

That is, until Giles stumbles across some passages in a volume from the decline of the Victorian Age. Detailing the shocking exploits of William the Bloody, aka Spike, terrorizing the local high society.

Apparently his victims were not only drained of blood, but showed signs of “sexual congress” with a demonic paramour.

In following records, it seems that some of these victims survived their attacks. Many, in private interviews with Watchers, confessed to having enjoyed the experience, once the terror wore away.

“He bore down upon me in the guise of a tempting devil. I could not resist his onslaught, nor did I particularly care to. He brought me to intense pleasures, again and again, mocking me for my weakness, even as he brought me to the cusp for a sixth time. I did not notice the marks upon my neck, my wrists, my thighs, until the next morning, when he was gone.”
The man seems quite distressed to relay these events to me. Vampires are vile creatures, not only monstrous in their appetites but in their manner of obtaining sustenance, corrupting good Christians with their licentious –

“Watcha readin’ there, Rupert?”

Giles starts, the book slipping from his fingers. Spike is in the room now, and quite close. Giles never heard him appear.

“Ah, research. Of course. And what dry subject are you so engrossed in this time?” Spike leafs through the pages, coming to where Giles left a bookmark.

Giles feels his face flush.

“… bloody hell.” Spike whistles. “Right, I remember this. Figured out it was more fun to do it that way, for a time. Some of the poor bastards even invited me back for seconds!” he shakes his head, laughing slightly. “Hundred years, people don’t change.”

Giles opens his mouth to protest, and then suddenly Spike is on him, straddling, him, pushing him down onto the couch.

“Havin’ a bit of fun, are we?” Spike asks, shifting his hips. “Readin’ nasty, dirty stories about the big bad vampire? You used to play with the dark magics, didn’t ya? Read all those grimories with one hand down your leather pants?”

Giles shakes his head but it’s a lie, and a transparent one at that. They were young and foolish and magic was so intoxicating, especially when mixed with drugs and sex and the most shocking records they could get their hands on.

“Fancy a taste?” Spike leans down and Giles forgets about the chip, all he can feel is terror. There’s a vampire pinning him down, moving towards his neck, oh god he’s going to die and Buffy’s going to find him and …

Spike only grazes his neck, reaches down, jerks Giles off fast and effortlessly, keeping their eyes locked the whole time. Giles comes with a groan and Spike catches his mouth in a sloppy kiss. He tastes like old cigarettes.

Spike gets up and leaves without a word. They don’t talk about it, ever. Giles puts the book away and doesn’t touch it again.
